Course Description

In Rome, the Trajan Column and its carved capital letters, is the foundation of calligraphic studies still to this day. The classic proportions of many alphabets derives from these well-proportioned symbols that have become our calligraphic touch stone. Some scribes spend a lifetime studying these beautifully formed letters. In this class we’ll start our journey in Rome, and continue right up to modern time, using pencils and broad edged pens to learn these foundational, but very challenging letters.
